Cara McCaughey is a textile artist and illustrator from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Now based in Brighton, and working as a textile technician, Cara specialises in hand embroidery which she uses to bring life to her illustrative drawings. She is inspired by narrative, wildlife and traditional textile technique and works to bring the three together harmoniously in a contemporary way. Her work is exclusively done by hand, and she strives to bring the rich heritage of textile work to a wider audience. She has worked to incorporate hand embroidery with paper, knit, screen-print and more over the course of her practice to explore the versatility of the technique and push the boundaries separating art and craft.
